Burritos, soft tacos, wraps, and quesadillas are all great meals that require the basic flatten tortilla. This recipe of very quick and doesn't require much for equipment that's already in your home.  I will make this dough recipe then begin on my burrito filling. Once the filling is just about done, I can begin to cook my tortillas.

2/3 cup warm water
1 2/3 cup all-purpose or bread flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp softened butter


All all the ingredients into your mixer or a large bowl if hand mixing. Mix till dough is soft, but not sticky.   Let it rest for 30 minutes.
Divide dough into 5-8 pieces depending on large you would like them.
Roll each into a ball first, then flatten with a rolling pin or a tortilla press.
Cook on a hot griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat, for about one minute or till it has some light brown spots. If you like them crispier go longer, if you would like them softer then stick closer to the one minute. Cook both sides.
Keep warm under a cloth while cooking the rest.
